4th Category of Dog Added Called the Battle Buddy
Pets Loyal 2 Vets looks to reach as many veterans in Minnesota who qualify for a trained service dog. But now, we have added a fourth category called the “Battle Buddy”. Nearly everyone in every branch of military is familiar with the term “Battle Buddy” so we added this category to honor all veterans. We pair up a veteran with a dog of their choice who doesn’t necessarily need a fully certified dog for PTSD or TBI symptoms but is just looking for a dog he or she can own and bond with as their new family pet. To qualify for this program, we will need a Battle Buddy application from the veteran and the dog must be from a Minnesota based 501(c)(3) dog rescue organization or Animal Humane Sheter located in Minnesota.
These dogs do not cost the veteran anything, all you need to do is to fill out an application and qualify. It is our way of helping veterans seeking a dog for themselves or their family but don’t necessarily have the resources to pay adoption fees. If you are a veteran and see a dog on Pet Finder or from a local rescue group or from any number of animal humane shelters throughout the state, contact us. You will need to fill out an application with Pets Loyal 2 Vets. Once all paperwork has been satisfied, we take care of all the adoption fees and you and the group complete all the rest on your end. All dogs being adopted must be micro chipped before adoption and fee is paid.
Recieving a Battle Buddy dog through Pets Loyal 2 Vets can’t be any easier than this and only requires a committment to take your new companion through a basic training class of 6-7 weeks in your area so you learn the basic commands in handling your dog. And the best part of that is, Pets Loyal 2 Vets also pays for that. That’s it.
It’s our way of establishing a Battle Buddy for you the veteran and your family and thanking you for your service to our country. So go ahead, use our contact form and lets get you a new Battle Buddy. http://petsloyal2vets.org/battle-buddy-application/
